Cojo Anchorage
34 26.8026 N 120 26.6845 W
25' hard bottom with decent holding between kelp patches

Cojo anchorage was pleasant as usual, despite gusty strong winds I slept without a worry.  Anchor down I got to work drilling holes in the deck for the spinnaker hardware.  Worked til dark and then warmed up some clam chowder for dinner with toasted sourdough bread on the side.  Boat kitty Shell was happy to have the anchor down and was running wild, sprinting around the cabin, then racing up the cabin top and leaping in to the sail.  

Today I'm heading to Santa Barbara to fuel up, then hopefully to Channel Islands Harbor for the night.  Monday I hope to be in Marina Del Rey.  

Had some spirited sailing this morning with boat speeds over 12 knots. Video here 

Stop over in Morro Bay
 LightSpeed with the iconic Morro Rock
 Lightspeed with new USCG compliant boat name on bow.  We're hoping to do some charters and sail coaching aboard LightSpeed, so lots of i's to dot and t's to cross to get 100% onboard with USCG regulations.
Ever helpful Harbor Patrol took me on a fuel run.  I didn't even ask, they offered.  Thanks guys!
